Canes lead Rangers heading into third period of Game 5

26 May 2022

The Carolina Hurricanes haven’t lost at home in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

They are trying to keep it that way.

The Canes lead the New York Rangers 2-1 after the second period of Game 5 on Thursday night at PNC Arena.

Teuvo Teravainen and Vincent Trocheck have scored for the Canes with Mika Zibanejad getting the lone goal for the Rangers.

The Canes are 6-0 in the playoffs at home and 0-5 on the road. They are trying to do what they did in the first round against the Boston Bruins and protect home ice.

Teravainen scored a power-play goal, the first of the series for Carolina, at 9:47 of the second period. Teravainen’s goal came after the Canes had successfully challenged an offsides call on an apparent goal by Ryan Strome for New York earlier in the period.

The Canes were dominant in the second period after Strome’s goal was wiped out after the video review with 15:03 left in the period.

Trocheck scored a short-handed goal at 12:57 in the first period to give the Canes a 1-0 lead. Canes captain Jordan Staal set up the goal with a beautiful saucer pass.

Zibanejad, who scored in both games in New York, tied the game up with a power-play goal at 17:06 in the first.
